Simple tips for keeping your energy costs low

(NC) Saving energy doesn’t have to be hard, and can go a long way towards making sure you meet your family’s monthly budget. Here are five simple tips from Hydro One to help keep your electricity costs low:

  1. LED bulbs combined with dimmers, timers and sensors give you more control over your energy use.
  2. Electronics use energy even when off. Plug them into power bars with timers or auto-shutoff to lower energy use.
  3. When using a car block heater, plug in and set an outdoor timer to run for no more than four hours before you need to leave.
  4. When you pause your video game, save it and power down the console to save energy.
  5. When you are not using your woodstove, close the damper to keep outside air where it belongs.
